Rub 'n Buff Redo (Take One)...

Labor Day weekend we bought a new couch.  You know how when you get one new thing it sparks change in the entire room?  I love that!

I moved the dining room rug to the living room, got rid of the living room rug, moved a table, and got rid of a table.  Lots of change!

That said, I have a little cabinet in my foyer that was my Me-Me's and the handles on it were broken.  I had taken several of the broken handles off and it has been bare for years.  I periodically have looked for replacements, but have had no luck.  I didn't want to settle for something I didn't love, so I've just waited.

Well, I was in Hobby Lobby last week picking up some mats I had cut and looking for Rub 'n Buff.  (My friend Missy had suggested this metallic rub for a mirror that I found at a yard sale.  It's for our master, but needs a little "umph".  More on that little project later.)

While in Hobby Lobby I looked through their handles and found these:

The color made them too "country" for me, but with Rub 'n Buff already in hand, I saw potential.  Anthropologie potential.

I really love the way they turned out.  I think they are Anthropogie-esque AND at a price of $4.50 each instead of $17+. 

Handles...In Progress.

Now I think she needs a little paint...kinda like new earrings sometimes call for a new dress!

Thanks for using AMACO's Rub 'n Buff. The handles are going to look great in gold.

Looking forward to seeing your future Rub 'n Buff projects. We're happy to post them on our Facebook page (Rub 'n Buff Metallic Finishes) and link them back to your blog.
